Pioneer Models update
We’ve all been waiting for hard news about the future plans of Pioneer Models, which has been going through a long, difficult process of establishing its own factory after having too many bad experiences with contractor factories in China. We have it on good authority from Pioneer USA that the first shipments of cars from the new factory are expected to arrive on these shores sometime in October.. These should be the first of the new and much anticipated Camaro models. Pioneer says that with the entire manufacturing process under its own control, from initial research to final distribution it will be able to bring out new models much more quickly. The Legends cars and the 1971 Javelin are expected to follow the Camaro in rapid succession. Meanwhile, Pioneer is now showing on its web site the first official drawing of the Chevy Legends car.
We will pass on to you any additional information as we receive it. For now, however, the end of the long drought of Pioneer cars is in sight, for which we can all rejoice. Electric Dreams wishes Julian Birley and all the gang at Pioneer all success and we congratulate them upon the imminent completion of their new factory.
New NSR 2mm axles, bushings, and gears.
NSR has released and we have received 2mm diameter axles along with bushings and spacers to fit them. Apparently, the level of competition in European racing has reached the point where reducing the axle diameter by .4mm or so is worth the effort for even the tiny incremental weight reduction this allows. NSR has also released a line of very lightweight plastic spur gears with metal hubs for both 2mm and 3/32″ axles, but there have been immediate reports of these gears failing due to improper design. We received a shipment of these gears but we will not be putting them on line for sale until we are certain the problem is resolved. We may end up returning all of them for replacement with improved gears.
Thanks for shopping with us!
